Welcome to LL Appaloosas. We are located in Burns, WY approximately 30 miles
east of Cheyenne, WY home of Cheyenne Frontier Days, the World’s Largest Outdoor
Rodeo. We specialize in breeding the Appaloosa performance horse that can do performance
classes like reining, games, cattle classes including cutting, compete in a halter class,
then take you out the next day to go for a trail ride or to do some work on the ranch.
We have the bloodlines of some great Appaloosas including Bright Eyes Brother,
Prince Plaudit, Joker B, Peavy Bimbo, Sundance, Woodrow Sheik, Bambie and
Mansfields Comanche. We also have the bloodlines of some great Quarter Horses
including Poco Bueno, King Fritz, Leo, Skipper W, Doc Bar, Wimpy, Peppy, King P-234,
Joe Reed II, Midnight, and Joe Hancock. We also have some more recent bloodlines
including Big Duke Six, Peptoboonsmal, Shorty Lena, Doc O’Lena, Dial Bright Too,
Does A Rollin, Zan Parr Bar and Pacific Bailey.
We have foals out of two of our mares that are eligible to be registered with the
Colorado Ranger Horse Association, which is one of the oldest western horse registries
in the United States. Both Big Duke’s Comet and Big Dukes Moondancer trace back to
Max #2 which is one of the founding stallions of the Colorado Ranger Horses. Also, foals
from these two mares are also eligible to be registered with the Sundance 500 International.
As of January 2011, we have started to test all of our breeding stock and future breeding
stock for HERDA, PSSM, GBED and OLWS as time and money permits. If our breeding
stock contains certain bloodlines know to possess genetic diseases and the sire and/or dam
has not been previously tested and found to be n/n (negative), they will be tested for that
genetic disease. None of our breeding stock or future breeding stock has the bloodlines of
Impressive so we will not be testing any of our horses for HYPP. We will have a page
completely dedicated to the test results of our breeding stock and some foals that are For
Sale, so that folks can view the test results and to provide folks with links so that they can
read up about the different genetic diseases. Also, you will find that some of our solid mares
have been tested for the Appaloosa Lp gene which is the gene that can give the Appaloosa
its mottled skin, sclera, stripped hooves and Appaloosa roaning.
As of October 14, 2011 all of our breeding stock has been PSSM tested and I am happy to
report that all of our breeding stock and future breeding stock is negative for PSSM.
Our first ApHC show of 2011 was a very successful show with Short But Sassy earning
national points in cutting, barrels, poles and figure 8 stake race and she was co-high point
Jr. Horse and Sneaky By Design earned national points in hunter in hand mares. For both
of these mares it was their very first ApHC show. Our second ApHC show of the season
netted even more points for Sneaky By Design in hunter in hand and aged mare halter and
Painted Pine picked up a partial point in hunter in hand mares as well.
